Technology leaders to hold key discussions at ITS America's Annual Meeting

The Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) has announced that it will hold a key discussion event concerning intelligent transportation and its role in helping to solve the USA’s infrastructure crisis. The meeting will involve national leaders, including: Ursula Burns, chairman and CEO of Xerox; Chris Vein, deputy White House chief technology officer; Robert Brown, Ford Motor Company’s vice president of sustainability, environment and safety engineering; and Martin Thall, Verizon’s vice president of telematics. The discussion will take place on the first day of ITS America’s Annual Meeting & Exposition, being held next week on May 21-23, in National Harbor, Maryland, which is just outside Washington DC.

More than 2,000 of the USA’s transportation and technology leaders are due to gather at the three day event entitled; ‘Smart Transportation - A Future We Can Afford.’ It will focus on affordable strategies to create smart cities and communities that are safer, cleaner, more affordable and less congested. As cities and states are being asked to do more with less, transportation leaders are turning to innovative technology solutions to optimize taxpayer dollars, while lowering driving costs, reducing traffic congestion, and improving the environment as well as road and vehicle safety.

Scott Belcher, president and CEO of ITS America, noted, “This is going to be one of the most dynamic events we’ve ever been involved in. We’ll be in the nation’s capital with thousands of transportation innovators and policymakers, all debating the legacy that we’re leaving for our kids. Intelligent Transportation provides low-cost solutions that create good jobs, help solve critical transportation challenges, and will improve our nation’s economic competitiveness.”
